Ubisoft has announced today that Prince of Persia 3 is currently in development. The story of this release takes place after the Warrior Within, as the Prince returns home to find that his people are against him. It turns out that a being known as The Dark Prince has come into the story and will conflict with the real Prince.
“Prince of Persia 3 promises to be THE best installment in the legendary franchise,” said John Parkes, Director Marketing at Ubisoft. “By combining two playable characters in a masterly balanced gameplay, with the perfect mix of acrobatic moves and a compelling storyline, the Prince of Persia will appeal to both Sands of Time and Warrior Within fans alike. The Prince is back to reclaim his kingdom, and he has a few surprises in store…”
Prince of Persia 3 is slated to be released in the second half of 2005 on Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, and PC.

SmartGUARD’s WallFly software aims to do for PC gaming what the V-chip has done for TV, which seems to be not much at all. Basically, the software is installed on a PC, and a parent can create profiles for each member of the family that might want to play a PC game. The parent can then configure which options are and are not allowed (blood and gore, for example), what hours children are allowed to play the games, and - most importantly - what ratings they may or may not play. My thing is, I know so many people that can get around so many different kinds of software that is supposed to restrict them from doing something. I haven’t tried WallFly out yet, but it is hard for me to believe that it will be any different.
